Song Lyrics

Gotta lotta people travel from a lotta places to come and see us tonight
Gotta lotta people sitting in their cars outside tuning in tonight
Sitting in their cars in Belfast and Glasgow
In Liverpool and Manchester
In Bristol and London
Well tonight we’re making you all Irish
This is a Dublin story

And so she woke up
She woke up from where she was
Lying still
Said I, I got to do something
About where I’m going

Step on a steam train
Step out of the driving rain
Maybe, run from the darkness
In the night

Singing ha, ha-la-la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-la-de-day, ha-la-la-de-day
Mmm-hmm

Sweet the sin
Bitter the taste in my mouth
I see seven towers
But I only see one way out

You gotta cry with out weeping
Talk without speaking
And scream without raising your voice
You know I took poison
From the poison stream
Then I floated out of here

Singing ha, ha-la-la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-la-de-day, ha-la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-de-day, yeah

She runs through the streets
With her eyes painted red
Under a black belly of cloud in the rain
Into a doorway she brings me
White gold and pearl stolen from the sea
She is raging
She is raging
And a storm blows up in her eye

She will suffer the needle chill
She’s running to stand…
Still

I’m still running
I’m still running
I’m still running
Still running
I’m hearing ya

I left my love by the gasworks wall
Dreamed a dream by the old canal
I kissed my love by the factory gate
Dirty old town
